Can you explain me how to delete all data from the specific program? I need to remove all user settings and data base of several packages. Specifically I wish delete all settings and media library from Rhythmbox and Clementine.

I tried to find their files in home folder, but cache of images is the only that I found there.

Run the following:

find . -type d -name rhythmbox

find . -type d -name clementine

That should find all folders named rhythmbox and clementine.

For example, the first one returns this


...but I've no idea where Clementine's data is.

I just have to delete it, right? – user103978 Nov 2 '12 at 17:07
it's strange… but find . -type d -name clementine shows nothing :) – user103978 Nov 2 '12 at 17:10
find . -type d | grep clemen shows nothing too – user103978 Nov 2 '12 at 17:13
How about find .-type d -name *lemen*? Theoretically, it could be storring settings anywhere. – mikewhatever Nov 2 '12 at 22:22
